Toledo’s Chris Rust reminded everyone in this link to TDN’s article Rising economy, contractor shortage boost cost of public works projects: “Increasing construction costs will impact projects on the bond. It will never be less expensive.”

Permaculture Homestead’s Ben Maesta shared this link from Mara Nieves on practical help for Puerto Rico: Hurricane Maria destroyed many of Puerto Rico's local seed and organic food-producing farm crops. Please, if you can, send me seeds. Even fruit seed for the tropics - I can plant them quickly. I will hand them out to those in need - as well as start flats in order to jumpstart their crops. Thank you!
